In Video: Russian Artillery Destroy Ukrainian M777 Battery

The Russian military has destroyed yet another battery of M777 155 mm towed howitzers, which were recently supplied by the US, Canada and Australia to Kiev forces.

The battery was targeted with 2A36 Giatsint-B 152 mm towed field guns. A video of the counter-battery strike was released by Russian journalist Vladlen Tatarsky on August 4. Russian artillerymen used a drone to locate the Ukrainian battery as well as to coordinate the strike.

The M777 has a maximum rate of fire of seven rounds per minute with a range of up to 40 kilometers when firing Excalibur precision-guided rounds. On the other hand, the Soviet-made Giatsint-B has a range of 30.5 kilometers with regular 152 mm rounds, and up to 40 kilometers with rocket-assisted rounds. The gun can fire up to six rounds per minute.

The US supplied 108, Canada four and Australia six M777 howitzers to Kiev forces to help thwart the Russian special military operation in Ukraine. Kiev also received hundreds of thousands of 155 mm rounds.

The Russian military has already destroyed many of Ukraine’s new-acquired M777 howitzers. Most of them were targeted with artillery.

Ukraine received more than 200 artillery piece from its Western allies over the last few months. Yet, its forces are still outgunned by the Russian military. In a recent video address, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy acknowledged that his forces cannot overcome the Russian military’s advantage in artillery even with all the support from the West.

“President Volodymyr Zelenskyy acknowledged that his forces cannot overcome the Russian military’s advantage in artillery even with all the support from the West.” And the sick Jew can’t do the decent thing and sue for peace and submit to Russia terms. I guess Ukraine did not meet the dead gentile quota yet.

Hahaha president of what? The Jew clown 🤡 is not even Ukrainian. Russia is on a roll ….SLAVA ROSSIYA!

Florian Geyer

Slava Rossiya indeed.

I really don’t understand how Jewlensky would fight against Russia, thinking he could hold them back?

Did he really think he had a chance without boots on the ground from NATO?

Rightiswrong

He’s worth 800 million dollars with villa’s in Italy, Miami and Israel.

He didn’t have 1 million Ukrainian notes before he was ordained to be chief cheerleader of the Nasty army.

Those people are crazy. Even craizier are those treasonous goyim slaves who follow the Juden lobbyists every illegal order.

Zelensky has no manoeuvre, neither can he fart without US permission. He can go along or receive a bullet in his head, his choice, either way, there’s always Zelensky mark 2 warming up to replace the first one. A nation of prostitutes who’s gladly take it from behind for those silver Shekels.

Correct. There is no more Ukraine as a sovereign state. Only a JUSA CIA colonial project.

Can’t see the gun crews neither, they burn in Bandera Hell.

But you can see the result of the strike – the destroyed M777.

maharaja

18 and 24 seconds. freeze video. you will see m777 that has been hit. The howitzer itself does not require that it be broken into many pieces but simply damaged to non operational. Any fire that can damage the gears or elevation traverse etc and its finished. In this video you can clearly see one and a second position. While not the best video with the cut away to the 152s firing (which were likely not the actual) it is a destroyed arty position. Guns rarely implemented alone.

NATO could supply ALL its artillery pieces to Ukraine and still be outgunned

Was this a single M777 artillery piece, or was this a battery of four M777s? I would have expected multiple explosions from the ammunition nearby. The video showed a tremendous explosion but it was just one blast.

Ammo stored in a central position for the battery, normal military SOP?

Rob Bryant

Films of batteries firing usually show the guns spread out with 70-100 yards between them, with ammunition nearby each of them. Would just one Giatsint-B rocket-assisted round or regular shell set off every piece of ammunition over such a wide area in just one huge explosion? I would expect successive explosions. I am not doubting that the DLA/Russian AF is rubbing out M777s, but feel the description/information is somewhat sketchy.

Isn’t this an illustration of US MIC make weapons for profit – cheap junk with high profit margins, while the Russians make weapons that work, devastatingly so, if you blink, you’re dead.

ukros are still far outgunned and will still be, no matter what the western supporters will deliver, because they can not deliver more than russia and lpr/dpr destroys. but i still dont get it why the russians use in ukraine only around a half of its active artillery potential and nearly still nothing from its huge reserve stocks. this more firepower could shorten up this war for months.

Hahaha! The operation is approaching the end. Winter is near and every thing on the ground will be done that time. In fact ukrain war architectures know this

azov bunch of emo rejects

Russia only uses one fifth of it’s active personnel in Ukraine! And Russia doesn’t need to send all of its force, Ukrainians are siding with Russia to fight the USA’s puppet regime in Kiev, search for the Russian Odessa Brigade. Russians are getting much combat experience, and will have many able combat veterans in it’s armed forces. Z V O

Russia can keep this pace, how long will the USA & Europe be able to afford pouring billions each month for Zelensky?

Disgusted American

The Ukraniam military will stage a 9mm coup to the back of Zelensky’s head. He should leave while he still can…
